τῆς αἰτίας depends on both verbs. ξυμμετίσχω having prepared the ear for a partitive gen., no harshness is felt in the reference of that gen. to φέρω also. We cannot take the gen. with the first verb only, and regard “καὶ φέρω” as parenthetic. Some real instances of such a parenthetic construction are given in the n. on 1279 f.; but the supposed examples often break down on scrutiny. Thus in Ai. 274, “ἔληξε κἀνέπνευσε τῆς νόσου”, the gen. goes with both verbs (cp. on O. C. 1113): for O. C. 1330, see n. there: in Aesch. PV 331πάντων μετασχὼν καὶ τετολμηκὼς ἐμοί”, the pron. might be dat. of interest with the second partic.; but we ought perhaps to read “συντετολμηκώς τ᾽ ἐμοί”.
